Eugene Garcia, writer/director

Eugene Garcia has been writing and directing film and video for twenty years, picking up several awards along the way (Best Canadian Independent Feature Film, Burnt Eden FCMM 1997; Best Actor for Romano Orzari in the lead role Burnt Eden, Kiev Intl Film Festival 1997). After a ten year hiatus, Garcia has returned to directing fiction in the past year. His gritty style and approach to fiction is highly recognizable; his accurate portrayal of urban and decadent yet humane characters has often garnered praise, with Sandra Brennan of The New York Times calling Garcia’s drug-fuelled debut feature Burnt Eden, “An arresting portrait of addiction.” In 2009, his latest feature film The Killing Boys screened in competition at the Festival du Nouveau Cinéma. He is currently in post-production on the feature film Uncontrollable, starring Romano Orzari, and developing two indie features for 2011.
